Something New and It's Free!





 My Card!

 A Closer look!
 Another look!
Another view!

First I would like to say that my heart and prayers are going out to all in Boston tonight. It breaks my heart that another cowardly act  has hurt so many innocents. 
I found the cutest images and they are free....yep...they are coloring pages...how great is that? 
You can find them here . I did use my print shop to play with some of them and clean them up to make them easier to color. But, I think this one is beautiful...How about you? Check out these free coloring pages. 
I used some of my favorite SU dp. This is a double sided paper and I think it is lovely. I had some lovely velvet roses that seemed to fit this image well. A few liquid pearls and some Stickles on the earrings  complete this card. I hope each of you will say a prayer for Boston and our country tonight. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: Lee Greenwood
If tomorrow all the things were gone I'd worked for all my life,
And I had to start again with just my children and my wife,
I'd thank my lucky stars to be living here today,
'Cause the flag still stands for freedom
And they can't take that away.
I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free,
And I won't forget the men who died who gave that right to me,
And I gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today,
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land God Bless the U.S.A.
From the lakes of Minnesota to the hills of Tennessee,
Across the plains of Texas from sea to shining sea.
From Detroit down to Houston and New York to L.A.,
There's pride in every American heart
And it's time we stand and say:
I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free,
And I won't forget the men who died who gave that right to me,
And I gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today,
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land God Bless the U.S.A.
